BGP Enabled transit in Chicago (River North) and equipment recommendation

I will note that Comcast will do BGP on their enterprise fiber circuits.
Comcast DIA (which they call EDI) comes in increments of 1M up to 10M, then
10M up to 100M, etc. So you could get 10M or 80M (not sure if "10MB/Sec"
means 10Mbps or 80MBps) and do BGP over that, if it's available. RCN is
likely similar but I'm not as familiar with their offerings.
